Spanning CP Garcia, Taguig to Sucat, Paranaque, this 7.7 KM Tollroad is composed of 2 Segments which are Segment 2 that will traverse CAVITEX to Sucat and Segment 3 which will continue on to Sucat, Paranaque, Pasay, Las Pinas, crossing over SLEX and the Skyway At-Grade to CP Garcia Avenue, Taguig. It will have 3 interchanges namely the CAVITEX R1 interchange, the Sucat Interchange and the Merville Interchange. The project is estimated at 10B.
“We are fast tracking construction to be able to open the 2.2KM Segment 3A1 towards the end of July, to immediately alleviate congestion and enable motorists to easily cross from Merville, Paranaque to Taguig and vice versa. This alignment features the bridge that crosses over Skyway at-grade and SLEX and aimed to decongest Sales Road, as well as the East and West Service Roads. Said DPWH Secretary Mark Villar who led the ocular inspection by driving through the almost completed segment. “Vehicular traffic spends about 1.5hours just to cross from Villamor to Taguig via Fort Bonifacio. This section alone will help about 5,000 vehicles easily cross in under 3 minutes. ” Villar added.

It will benefit about 50,000 cars in key areas of Metro Manila such as Makati, Taguig, Las Pinas, Pasay and Paranaque, as well as the roads of EDSA, Sales, East and West Service Roads.
